    This Icelandic police force has the most adorable Instagram account 

    Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.

    There’s more where those came from | Follow micdotcom

    For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.

    Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]

    Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.

    It’s a Hershey’s Chocolate Bar. Besides the always-welcome chocolate, what’s so awesome about that? Look again. It’s not a Hershey’s Bar at all. It’s a ‘Hirschy’s Bar' - a beautifully-designed, awesomely original resumé created by Michigan-based designer Matthew Hirsch for a class assignment.

    "We had to create a thank you that could be sent to various creative directors who speak to our class," he explained. "In hopes of striking up a dialogue, while giving these creative directors information about my skill set, I created a Hirschy’s Bar."

    Combining a bit of wordplay with innovative, elegant design and, of course, the gift of chocolate, seems like a fantastic way to distinguish oneself for prospective employers and clients. Just make sure you bring enough for everybody.
